I had my apartment unit on Airbnb for few months which I furnished with TV, furniture, beddings etc, should I add CCA or expense it? I finalized airbnb in the same year.

There were condominium rules that prohibited me to carry on Airbnb so I finally decided to just let it go. 

 

I talked to a tax expert and she mentioned to expense it all since I concluded rental business in same year so there won't be CCA to carry on for next year.

 

If I have to expense it, should I just claim in Other expenses under Rental Income along with Condo Fee, Cleaning Fee etc or should I add CCA values with correct classes (like Class 8 for furniture etc, 12 for cutlery, linens, coffee maker etc) and use No assets left in class (even though some things are still in my use). 

 

⚠️Edit:

I've concluded all type of rentals for this unit (long term, airbnb) and is my principal residence now.

So basically.. Jan'19 - Mar'19 was on long term rental (started last year and had to evict tenant after that), and from Apr'19 to Aug'19, it was on Airbnb. I moved in Sept'19 till now.
